“It was necessary for our HR division to be more strategic and strengthen our ability to compete in the globalized automotive industry. With Domo, we are now able to find the right employees with the right expertise and the accurate information of all employees in each division, which enables us to hire, place and educate them to more fully support the overall management strategy,” said Yuichiro Matsumoto, Deputy Manager of Recruitment Planning and Employment at DENSO.
“Domo’s innovative platform has opened new doors for us and helped put us in a position to expand and accelerate the business,” Matsumoto added.
The initiative underscores the disruption and innovation that is currently driving the automotive industry. Technologies such as autonomous and electric cars are already shaping the industry while highlighting gaps in HR and talent management processes.
